When is he going to be honest with the people and call a spade a spade instead of beating around the bush and spent months not knowing what to do and not knowing what to say. The Home Minister needs some serious reinventing.
Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has even spoken out against criticising the police force. “If these attacks continue, how can we teach the younger generation about nationhood?
What have criticising the police got to do with nation building? If something goes wrong just stay still and do nothing to fix it? Is that what he wants us to teach our children ? Great! That's why he couldn't figure out how to handle the British government.
As in the idiom " one man's meat is another man's poison" one must not assume all things are alike.Different strokes for different folks.There is no detention without trail in Britain.It has abolished seditious libel and criminal defamation in January this year.The AG Chambers ,the Police and Home Ministry should know this and should stop misleading the people that they can get RPK back.
Malaysia is not alone, many American states and European countries still have criminal libel laws.
The Prime Minister is in a Catch 22 situation.If Raja Petra is truly bankrupt than a civil suit against him is difficult to pursue.I am not sure whether an aggrieved party can apply for direction from the court or Director General of Insolvency to sue a bankrupt.Maybe, some legal eagles out there can clear the air.
In the case of Najib and Rosmah a defamation suit should not be for punitive damages but essentially to clear their names.They were the ones implicated and defamed, not national security under threat, therefore, the use of ISA and the Sedition Act against RPK is not looked upon fondly by the British government.The Malaysian government needs some serious soul-searching.
Read RPK resonating blast here.
This thorn in the flesh will be around for a while. You may just have to tolerate him.
